Fantasía at the Armory
A 20th Season Reunion Celebration






We’re animating the Cranston Street Armory! On Sunday, June 4, Community MusicWorks is proud to participate in the Cranston Street Armory Animated by Art program with a performance in Dexter Park. This event marks the final day of PVDFest, a 4-day arts and music festival of live music, dance, food, and visual art installations transforming public spaces, parks, and outdoor stages in the heart of Providence.

Join us in celebrating the close of our 20th season with a special reunion concert featuring CMW students, alumni, and the MusicWorks Collective. We’ll also welcome back composer Gonzalo Grau and his nine-piece salsa band along with renowned violinist Johnny Gandelsman for a reprise of the magnificent Fantasía de Guayaba Habanera. Bring your dancing shoes for a closing set of salsa music and make this season finale an event to remember!

CMW Celebrates 20 with Twenty Years, Twenty Stories





This year Community MusicWorks turns 20! To mark the milestone, we are gathering the stories of 20 members of our community–musicians, students, parents, graduates and supporters. Look for new stories throughout the season.

Interviews were recorded, transcribed and edited to create personal narratives in each subject’s distinctive voice. We hope 20 Years, 20 Stories captures the many flavors and varieties of CMW experience. Join us at a concert anytime to start creating your own CMW story.
